The Universal Film Manufacturing Company was not known in the silent era as premier producer of motion pictures. In the interest of making this great film more available, I've converted it to an mp4 very close to DVD quality. You can find the MPEG2 (1.6 Gig) version at: http://www.archive.org/details/20000LeaguesUndertheSea

From: IMDb : France, 1640: Cyrano, the charismatic swordsman-poet with the absurd nose, hopelessly loves the beauteous Roxane; she, in turn, confesses to Cyrano her love for the handsome but tongue-tied Christian. The chivalrous Cyrano sets up with Christian an innocent deception, with tragic results. Much cut from the play, but dialogue not rewritten.

Judge Priest depicting life in Kentucky after the Civil War and Reconstruction Period. It still shows the stereotypes and prejudices which existed at that time in a somewhat humorous manner. Based on a story by the noted Kentucky humorist, Irvin S. Cobb, it presents life as one would have imagined it at that time period.

The Universal Film Manufacturing Company was not known in the silent era as premier producer of motion pictures. Yet, in 1916 they produced a film that could not be made effectively without expensive special effects and special photography. The novel had previously been made as short films in 1907 by Georges Méliès and in 1913 by French company ÃÂclair.) Marshalling the expertise underwater experts Ernest and George Williamson, Universal financed the extensive production which would...

Taken from IMDB : As a parting shot, fired reporter Ann Mitchell prints a fake letter from unemployed "John Doe," who threatens suicide in protest of social ills. The paper is forced to rehire Ann and hires John Willoughby to impersonate "Doe."

At last everyone, even Ann, takes her creation seriously...but publisher D.B. Norton...

German director Fritz Lang is best known for the highly influential films from relatively early in his career, especially Metropolis (1927) and M (1931). But he also had a brief Hollywood heyday during the mid 1940s, when he made some of his best films. Scarlet Street has been claimed by film noir. This attribution is understandable. The lighting is dark, with heavy use of shadows. The characters are all shady as well. Kitty is certainly a femme fatale, although hints are dropped that she is an...

Disturbing drama about the Ku Klux Klan and race starring Lee Marvin, Richard Burton, Cameron Mitchell, Lola Falana and Linda Evans. Directed by Terence Young (of James Bond (Dr. No & From Russia With Love) fame). Based on the novel by William Bradford Huie. This is probably the cut TV version of the movie.
